SeacoastNH editor J. Dennis Robinson and historian Valerie Cunningham pose with Val's giant stamp award from the US Post Office. Newest in the Black Heritage stamp series, this one features politician Patricia Roberts Harris. The ceremony was conducted at the newly redesigned Portsmouth post office.

Mayor Evelyn Sirrell and Valerie Cunningham
Portsmouth Mayor Evelyn Sirrell was on hand to say some kind words about Val and Dennis. Here's the mayor with Valerie and her mom after the ceremony. Valerie's 25 years of work has led to the Portsmouth Black Heritage Trail, the Blues Bank Collective, and the African-American Resource Center.

Pages of the SeacoastNH Black History web site will be viewed up to a million times this year. Here is the SeacoastNH giant stamp award that features W.E.B. Dubois. On the left is Harry Figuero, US Postal Office Diversity Development Specialist. On the right are James Adams, District Manager of NH Post Office, and Patricia Hersey, Portsmouth's Postmaster.

W.E.B. Dubois
We were especially proud and pleased by the Post Office's choice of W.E.B. Dubois (1868-1963) as the stamp presented to SeacoastNH. First, we liked the fact his initials spell the word "web". Secondly and more seriously, Dubois was a controversial writer, scholar and social activist -- roles we can respect and hope to emulate.
